WELCOME TO LAVENDER SHEA ATELIER
Semi Permanent Eyelash Extensions
Xtreme Lashes certified technician that specialize in Xtreme Lashes Semi Permanent Eyelash Extensions...
My promise is that you will love your new and improved lashes, I am pleased to enhance your natural beauty!
My name is Aja and I am the owner and lash technician of Lavender Shea Atelier!
I received my license in Esthetics by attending Long Island Nail Skin and Hair Institute in 2011. During and after school I eagerly immersed myself in the world of beauty, by working as an aesthetician perfecting skills in Microdermabrasion, facials, peels, laser hair removal, brow shaping, and makeup.
In 2012 I was approached with the idea of learning how to apply semi-permanent lash extensions, and naturally I jumped on the opportunity to learn this amazing art! I became formally trained and certified in Classic Lash Extension application by NovaLash. I took my knowledge to the next level when I trained and became certified by Xtreme Lashes.
Eager to learn more and continue to grow in 2016 I trained in Russian Volume Lash Extension Application with international award winning London Lash Pro. I am passionate about my career as a Lash Artist, and strive to provide my clients with the most comfortable atmosphere using only top-of-the-line products and the most skilled, up-to-date techniques available today.
I enjoy seeing my clients every two or three weeks, and building a relationship. Putting a smile on my clients' faces, and enhancing their natural beauty by creating a custom look tailored to their individual needs remains my number one priority.
When I'm not applying lash extensions, I love spending quality time with my beautiful daughter, staying active participating in and or watching my favorite sports, creating my latest smoothie concoction, and having fun with family and friends.
Safe and comfortable to wear, Xtreme Lashes Eyelashes Extensions are designed to mimic your natural eyelashes. They are lightweight and the length I select will always be tailored to what your natural lash can hold. A consultation based on your natural eye shape, size, and lash condition will be conducted to help me design the perfect look for you. With customized length, fullness, and curls I can determine what would best suit the client's eyes, taking into consideration both style preference and the current health of your natural lashes.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will eyelash extensions damage my natural lashes?
This is why it is so important to be sure your lash extensionist is certified. Properly applied and maintained lash extensions will not ruin your natural lashes. They are attached to your own isolated individual lashes, so they fall out naturally when yours shed, which for most women is on a 60-90 day cycle. You do not need to take breaks from lash extensions if your lash artist is keeping your lashes healthy.
Will they look really natural?
With professional application, eyelash extensions look completely real, adding curl, thickness, and length, opening up the eye for added definition. You have three thicknesses and four different curls to choose from, with length ranging from 5mm to 20mm in a variety of colors for highlighting effects. For the best overall effect, we select the thickness and lash lengths best suited to the shape and frame of your natural lash line. Taking into account the health and thickness of your natural lashes, as well as personal preference your lash extensions can be as subtle or dramatic as you desire.
What is the difference between classic and volume lashes?
Classic lashes are single eyelash strands that are applied one by one to every one of your natural lashes for a natural look and feel.
Xtreme lashes X- Wrap lash extensions give that VOLUME look with a classic single application. The flat base lash design can conceals lash line gaps and give the illusion of eyeliner on your upper lid.
Volume lashes is the technique of applying multiple lightweight eyelash extensions to one single natural eyelash to create more depth, texture, and volume. Giving a beautiful 3D effect.
How do I maintain lash extensions?
Do not get your lash extensions wet for the first 24 hours. Avoid hot steam, or sauna immediately afterwards to allow enough time for the adhesive to bond to the lashes. Cleanse and rinse your lashes with an eyelash extension approved cleanser then lightly brush through the lashes and resume your normal activities. Do not use a eyelash curler, this can cause lash breakage. Swimming, saunas, and hot yoga are just fine, yes you read that right, as all as its 24 hours after application... have fun.
How long do they take to apply?
To apply a full set of eyelash extensions, depending on the number of lashes being applied, allow between 120 to 150 minutes ~ for touch-ups, around 45 to 60 minutes.
How long will they last?
Professionally applied, with proper care and maintenance, the full lush appearance of your eyelash extensions can be maintained indefinitely. They will remain in place until the natural lash it's attached to falls out when it reaches the end of it's growth cycle
(every 60 to 90 days).
Bear in mind that a few eyelash extensions may shed within the first week because the attached natural lashes are at the end of their growth cycle. But most will remain in place for approximately two months, with touch-ups only needed every 2 to 3 weeks.
Does it hurt to have lash extensions applied?
No, eyelash extensions are painless when applied properly. Most clients feel comfortable enough to fall asleep during the service. At Lavender Shea Atelier our goal is to provide quality services and products in a private, positive energy environment. Peaceful soothing music playing during your lash application will leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed, and most of all beautiful.

Sick of a long A.M. beauty routine?
We specialize in making clients look and feel beautiful, with a low maintenance beauty routine. Eyelash extensions enhance the natural beauty of the eye bringing radiance and youth to one's appearance.
Want to know more?
Our eyelash extensions are applied individually one by one, 1mm away from the eyelid never directly on the skin, to your natural eyelashes using a medical-grade formaldehyde-free adhesive. Lash extensions come in different lengths, thickness, and curls, results can vary from subtle and natural to very noticeable and dramatic.
It is best that you do not get the extensions wet for the first 24 hours after application. We also recommend clients come in for touch ups every 2 - 3 weeks. We do not recommend using mascara since it is very difficult to remove from the extensions without pulling at your natural lashes, however our lash extensions range from 6mm to 20mm in length, and 0.05mm to 0.20mm in thickness in a variety of curls.
" Aja's lashes are as good as it gets: so natural, so pretty, and the opposite of the scary, glued-on version that are so common, even at the most well-respected salons. Add to that -- she's the absolute best person, a total joy to be around! " Xx
"Aja is by far one of the best in the industry. She is meticulous and will make sure each and every lash is perfect and will make sure when she is done you will feel like your most beautiful self. She is patient and most of all she cares to make sure she is using the highest quality lashes, adhesive, and supplies. I completely trust her and know how she places the lashes and the weight of the lash will not damage my own natural lashes. Highly highly recommend!!!"
"I love my new lashes... I was a little nervous because I've had bad lash extension experiences in the past at other salons, but Aja was so nice. She was patient and really listened to what I wanted and my fears. I didn't even feel her working on my lashes it was so relaxing I fell asleep. My natural lashes are very short & blonde you can barely see them. At the end of my lash nap I opened my eyes and couldn't believe...my eyes lol I had full beautiful cat-eye style lashes, that I love! So full and definitely longer then my natural lashes but not too long or unbelievable... she used dark & light brown lashes on me for a more natural look!!! I get so many compliments. Thank you Aja honey you are fabulous and have a client for life!" xoxo
"Aja is so patient, so funny, and highly skilled. I barely feel her working on my eyes and I even doses off to sleep, much to my surprise once I open my eyes... I love my new lashes, Thank you Aja.
I highly recommend "
"My wife's birthday was approaching soon after the arrival of our first child. Having heard her speak about wanting to try eyelash extensions I thought a gift certificate for lashes would be a great gift. Aja at Lavender Shea you did not disappoint. My wife was beautiful the whole time, but now she feels beautiful again too! She is really looking forward to also relaxing / napping during her next appointment... lol Thank you"
